Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aero 13 Great size and weight for travel. WiFi works well. No issues with shipping or set up. The Ryzen 5 processor is enough for my needs. Windows 11 is a mixed bag and seems half baked compared to 10. Haven't explored the on battery time, yet. Overall, I'm happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Laptop Overall So far, I'm glad about my purchase of this laptop. It's thin, light, and has a decent number of ports for a 13-inch laptop, though I do wish it had at least another USB-C port or a micro-SD card reader. The screen looks great and is probably the best screen I've seen on a laptop of this size. The fingerprint scanner works well, and I have no complaints about the trackpad. While I do prefer Wi-Fi cards from Intel, the Realtek card this comes with performs around the same as an iPhone 14 Pro in the speed tests I've done, so no complaints there either. Keyboard is pretty good too and the backlighting works well at full brightness. The low setting makes it a bit hard to read the keys. Battery life is good. Several hours of use with basic web-browsing, YouTube, Zoom, and using Steam's Remote Play feature to game on my gaming PC through the laptop with no problems. In my use, the only downside of this machine is the audio quality of the speakers. They're not that loud, but that is to be expected with smaller laptops. I did have an issue where static was almost always coming from the left speaker when any audio was playing but disabling the audio enhancements fixed that. The webcam isn't the best either, but it's good enough for a quick Zoom or Teams call. The built-in mics are surprisingly good though. Overall, if you're looking for a laptop with good battery life, excellent performance, lightweight, and has a great display, you can't go wrong with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thin and light laptop, ever! This is hands-down the best thin and light laptop you can buy. Performance of the Ryzen 5 5600U is that of a top-end desktop-class CPU just a couple of years ago. The Vega iGPU is not as good as the newer Navi on e.g. a 6600U, but still enough to play all kinds of games, including newer ones. I played a lot of Fortnite and Orc Must Die 3 on the laptop at more than 60fps. And if you're trying to find another laptop with this class of performance you will not find anything under 1kg like this one. Windows 11 sucks, tho. I put Arch Linux on my laptop and everything has been amazing
